DELHI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

After calling 911 to report a home invasion, a local man ended up in jail on Saturday morning.

According to Delhi Township Police, 20-year old Cody McAmis woke up just before 6 a.m. and found two men trying to break into his home on Greenwell Avenue.

Investigators say McAmis noticed that one of the suspects had a gun and both had white shirts covering their faces. That’s when McAmis fired a shot at them through a window, sparking a shootout that ended with both suspects getting away in a dark colored car, according to police.

Shortly after, McAmis called 911 to report the crime.

When officers arrived, they say they encountered an overwhelming smell of marijuana, causing them to search the home. Investigators say they found marijuana and other drug paraphernalia inside.

As a result, McAmis was arrested and charged with a felony count of trafficking drugs, and a lesser count of possession.

He’s due in court on Monday.                 

Delhi Police are still searching for the two suspects who approached McAmis’ home. They’re described as follows:

#1 Male white, 6'00 to 6'04 in his 20's, possible brown hair, wearing dark pants, and a short sleeve dark shirt.

His face was covered by a white shirt. He was armed with a firearm.   

#2 Male, unknown race, 5'10" to 6'00, in his 20's, wearing dark pants, dark shirt (unknown if long sleeves or short), unknown hair color. His face was also covered in a white shirt.

 If you have any information on who these suspects may be, you’re asked to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
